Awesome Toy Picks is back! To commemorate the release of LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes it seemed like the perfect time to showcase the recent LEGO Batmobile and the Two-Face Chase set. Because I just returned from vacation, I haven't had a chance to open my copy of the video game but I'll soon be tearing open the cellophane and giving the game a spin.
The set retails for about $50 but I managed to find it for $35 at a Kmart of all places. At 531 pieces, it won't take a huge amount of time to build. And what you'll want to remember is once these sets are out of stock, they tend to see price increases online. In other words, get 'em while you can.
Some of these recent LEGO superhero sets force you to get vehicles in order to get the characters. But this one is worth it with the Batmobile. Even Two-Face's jeep is pretty cool. This is definitely one of my favorite LEGO sets.
Of course, no LEGO photo shoot would be complete without trying to tell some sort of story. Check it out below to see if you can figure out how Batman outsmarts Two-Face.
***Insert LEGO "KABOOM" here***
Can this be? Has Two-Face gotten away with this crime? Is the hard-earned money of the citizens of Gotham gone?
And here's another look at everything you get here:
That's not all we have for this week. A few months ago I went to the LEGO Store by Disneyland and picked up this 3-pack. What's cool is you get Batman, Robin and Joker. The bad thing is they're attached to the LEGO magnets.
I recall buying some Star Wars sets like this and the figures popped right off. These are glued to the magnets. I haven't decided if I'm going to try to surgically remove them.
Looks like Joker is willing to help "remove" Robin.
That's it for this week. There will definitely be another installment of Awesome Toy Picks next week and it won't be LEGO if you've had enough LEGO spotlights lately.
